Hong Kong is an international financial centre. It is also one of the major Chinese cities for all types of business and trade. In this hectic business environment there are a plethora of rules and regulations governing the conduct of those involved in such activities.
Hong Kong has three major law enforcement agencies tasked with combatting commercial crime and fraud and maintaining Hong Kong's reputation as the best city in Asia in which to conduct business.
Members of Liberty Chambers have wide experience in dealing with all types of commercial crime investigations under-taken by the Commercial Crime Bureau of the Hong Kong Police (CCB); the Independent Commission against Corruption (ICAC); and the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC).
These cases often involve vast amounts of corporate documentation and expertise in understanding and managing such materials is crucial.
For those under investigation, it is important that they receive, at the earliest opportunity, specialist legal advice. This will ensure that their legal rights are protected. In turn, it will ensure that no strategies are adopted which could lessen the likelihood of a favourable outcome to such investigations.
In those cases where the investigations lead to arrest, charges and trial, members of Liberty Chambers have considerable experience in both defending and prosecuting such offences.
